Shannon Peters

Shannon Petersis a U.S. Dressage Federation Bronze, Silver and Gold Medalist, and three-time National Championship competitor: on Luxor in 2007 when the two were crowned Reserve National Champions Intermediare I; on Flor de Selva in 2009 when they took home 4th place in the Intermediare division; and on Akiko Yamazaki’s Odyssey in 2011 after winning the Grand Prix Special at Del Mar and Burbank CDIs.
Today, as a popular clinician and teacher, and coach to her husband Steffen, she is featured in dressage symposiums around the country, often focusing on a subject most important to her, the rider’s position.

"What we may not realize is the extent to which the rider’s position affects the execution of movements by the horse. It’s about so much more than just pretty riding – it’s effective riding, and preparing our horses to perform their work correctly."

Conrad's Story

Conrad Schumacher is one of the world's foremost dressage trainers, having trained many students to international Olympic and World Championship level. He has been an influential force in the successful teams from Germany, Holland, Great Britain and the USA. With his many years of experience, first as a rider then as a coach, trainer and judge, and his excellent command of the English language, Conrad is able to communicate with clarity and candor the correct path for over 4000 horse and rider combinations. The focus of his system, he says, is on making the riders better, which in turn then improves the horses.

"If I can make the rider better, I can make the horse better."
